Program Notes

It is New Year's Day in Lealholme, situated in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, England. It is early on a bright sunny morning, but there is a bite in the air and frost on the ground.

In a field stand two 1918 Bi-planes. Into the stillness of the morning walk a small group of people. Suddenly, as the propellers are spun round and the machines roar into life, the aeroplanes climb into the matchless blue sky of the early morning.

They soar and dive in exultant mock combat.
